Simulation and Numerical Techniques

Numerical simulations have established themselves as a third mainstay of science next to experiment and analytical theory. These simulations enable insights into new corners of science where experiments cannot be performed or where analytical evaluations are impossible. They also complement and guide experiments by providing ab-initio input from theoretical models and help theory to nonperturbatively solve differential equations, complex minimization problems or high-dimensional integrals.

The portfolio of the groups within the WPC using numerical simulation techniques is very broad. It encompasses:
